Question about 1993 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Raise vehicle, remove wheel(s), take off your brake caliper(s) (two bolts). hold caliper in place with wire/string out of the way careful with brake line (you don't want to damage that(don't actualy remove the brake line from the caliper either) . separate steering knuckle from strut. (two large bolts on the strut) you may need to separate tie rod end from steering knuckle as well or if you can just push it far enough to the side, then remove the cotter pin from end of cv axle its the huge nut in the center of the wheel hub. then you remove the nut from the cv axle, now you're able to remove the wheel side of cv axle. do so by bending the cv at the (outermost boot and pushing out on the steering knuckle,there are teeth between the two you will have to line up when installing. next is the tricky part getting it out of the transaxle. you'll want a rubber mallet & long flat head screw driver to carefully tap the cv with the mallet while very carefully prying with the screwdriver. (small prybar prefered.cv is held in by a circlip basically a small circular piece of metal thats too big for the hole its in. once you get the cv seperated from the transaxle/transmission. remove it from vehicle and install in reverse order of removal. making sure all teeth line up and the cv clips firmly into trans. very important put in a new cotter pin when you get the cv though the hub and nut very tight . good luck (repair based on 93 eclipse gs 1.8l manual trans. other models similar.)
hope this is helpful. Good Luck ; )
